Let's talk about Philadelphia Steals & Deals this week. I did find much and I did find some disappointments. By that I mean advertisements that were not fulfilled. When I reached the stores the promised ads were not in. The answer I received was the order never arrived. It was not just for one item but for several. I said that gas was expensive and drove there for these advertised specials. They understood  apologized no rain checks. I was annoyed and left . It was not the day the ad started either. Went to my local store, picked up the chicken they advertised for almost the same price. What I did not like is they had chicken they were advertising  .79 more a pound  don't think I will be going back there for a long while. Gas prices are through the roof   for premium  $ 5.26 which is wh...

Let's talk about Delaire Landing a gated waterfront community. What a wonderful place to live. Properties here are not staying on the market long. People question, "What is the Value? Once one of the best kept secrets in the city of Philadelphia is now well known. There are different styles of condos to meet different needs and tastes. There are also apartments within this community for those not sure if they are ready  or want the responsibility to to own. These apartments have a waiting list, some units waiting up to five years. Don't get me wrong not all units .The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Flowers are changed with each season. The trees are kept manicured and trimmed. It is also home to wildlife. You will forget you are in the City of Philadelphia. My neighbor called me o...

 Rumor has it that Elon Musk wants to buy Coca Cola and use the original recipe. Yes did you know that cocaine was in the original Coca Cola. Well never fear because even Elon Musk can not afford to buy Coke. Now would that be considered dealing? Come on everyone needs to laugh these days don't they?Let's change things around a little this week and talk Real Estate first . In some townships after a house goes under contract  you have to get certifications for the Use and Occupancy Permits. Now of course this costs the seller money. Electrical people come out to make sure the house is up to code. They test all the outlets and the electrical panel box.  This is  kind of overkill as when the buyer had the home inspected .This was already  done by the buyer's home inspector. Next the seller...

Is It Enough To Offer Asking Price in Today’s Housing Market? If you’re planning to buy a home this season, you’re probably thinking about what you’ll need to do to get your offer accepted. In previous years, it was common for buyers to try and determine how much less than the asking price they could offer to still get the home. The buyer and seller would then negotiate and typically agree on a revised price that was somewhere between the buyer’s bid and the home’s initial asking price. In today’s real estate market, buyers shouldn’t shop for a home with the same expectations Things Are Different Today Today’s housing market is anything but normal. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average home that’s sold today: Receives 4.8 offers Sells in just 17 days Home...

How Homeownership Can Help Shield You from Inflation If you’re following along with the news today, you’ve likely heard about rising inflation. You’re also likely feeling the impact in your day-to-day life as prices go up for gas, groceries, and more. These rising consumer costs can put a pinch on your wallet and make you re-evaluate any big purchases you have planned to ensure they’re still worthwhile. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a home this year, you’re probably wondering if you should continue down that path or if it makes more sense to wait. While the answer depends on your situation, here’s how homeownership can help you combat the rising costs that come with inflation. Homeownership Offers Stability and Security Investopedia explains that during a period of high infl...

The Dream of Homeownership Is Worth the Effort If you’re in the market to buy a home this season, stick with it. Homebuyers face challenges in any market, and today’s is no exception. But if you persevere, your decision to purchase a home will be worth the effort in the end. In fact, a recent survey from Bankrate shows homeownership is so powerful that: “Nearly three in four homeowners say they would still buy their current home if they had it to do [sic] all over again.” That means the results – owning a home and the benefits that come with it – outweigh the effort needed to achieve their goal. If you’re a homebuyer, let that provide you with the confidence to know the work you’re putting in today will pay off for years to come. Here are a few reasons to stick with your search and foc...

What You Need To Know About Selling in a Sellers’ Market Even if you haven’t been following real estate news, you’ve likely heard about the current sellers’ market. That’s because there’s a lot of talk about how strong market conditions are for people who want to sell their houses. But if you’re thinking about listing your house, you probably want to know: what does being in a sellers’ market really mean? What Is a Sellers’ Market? The latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows housing supply is still very low. There’s a 2-month supply of homes at the current sales pace. Historically, a 6-month supply is necessary for a normal or neutral market where there are enough homes available for active buyers. That puts today deep in sellers’ market ...

We have all encountered a home with failed seals in the windows. How bad the window looks varies, but if we are about to list it, we know it will be better if those seals were not failed and the window foggy. Even in this market, the buyer is likely to comment or request the window be replaced. However, in our market there is another option.I recently got an email, well several emails from Derek Posch of DPGWindows explaining that his company repairs windows that might be an issue in a home inspection. Note, the difference here, the window can be repaired, at a fraction of the cost of a replacement. Well, my fiancée actually has several windows that have failed seals, and as we will be selling the home shortly, we thought we would see how well Derek's promise would hold up. See for your...
